Mission Statement

The Mitchell Museum's mission is to promote and share a deeper understanding of Native American Indian peoples through the collection, preservation and interpretation of traditional and contemporary art and material culture.

Description

The Mitchell Museum of the American Indian is the only museum in the Chicago-area that focuses exclusively on the history, culture and arts of the Native people of North America. Its general purpose is to promote and share a deeper understanding of Native American peoples through the collection, preservation and interpretation of their traditional and contemporary art and material culture. Its mission also includes promoting public understanding of cultural diversity through first voice perspectives. The Museum’s collection includes archaeological, ethnographic and art objects of North American Indian and Inuit (Eskimo) people from all time periods, from the Paleo-Indian period through the present day. The Museum serves as a resource for the Evanston and surrounding communities, for the greater Chicago area and its schools, for Native peoples, and for researchers from other educational and cultural institutions. The Museum is dedicated to working collaboratively with each of these constituencies in all of its activities including collections care, exhibitions, guided tours, lectures, demonstrations, workshops, loan programs and docent training.
